Issue 15 - January & February

Welcome to the somewhat belated Issue 15 of Brush Strokes.  Technology got the better of us last month when one of our computers completely died and had to have a major overhaul.  However, we are back and raring to go with a bumper double issue with articles on special effects bodypainting, henna & khidab, belly painting, balloon twisting, reviews and 9 step-by-steps for you to try.  Enjoy!
